I think that there are jobs available in my own country, but the thing is one job is equivalent to more than a hundred applicants, think about it. That is reality in my own country because of recession. A lot of unemployed people and so i encouraged my friends that if they have a good decent job even if they don't get a raise for their salary, just be patient because in these days it is so difficult for someone to look for a job. Probably if you wanted a high paying job and a job suited to you, it will take you more time. Not unless the job you know is in demand and highly needed by the company. But if you just finished College and does not have any experience at all, chances are, you will struggle and end up finding a job that does not even related to the course you finish in College. And this is also true to many. They finish a course and ended up in fast food chain as a crew. I have nothing against that, as long as someone pursue and succeed right.

Yes I agree with you.. Say there are 500 companies in need of a Supervisor, thousands of people may be qualified for that position.. I know many graduates who are employed as service crews.. They spent a lot of money for finishing their 4-5 years courses.. but most of them can save that amount within at least another 5 years.. I'm thinking if that money was used for some small business, maybe it could be a great source of income..

yes this is true . i do think that you should work any job you can get until one comes open that relates to your field .the bottom line is that we work to put food on the table and any job can do that until we find one we like.it just seems crazy to do nothing.

Yes.. It could be great if you have many work experiences related to your course. For me, I worked as an student assistant for 2 years, computer technician and salesman for 3 months(i have a hot-tempered boss that's why I resigned), then do some typing jobs from my friends and neighbors..

Their are jobs out there they just aren't very good jobs. We are always hiring where I work but we have a high turnaround in staff because most other jobs pay better and have benefits. I think people don't want to just settle for any old job these days.

It all depends on what you do but there is not many jobs in our area.There is a bit more choice as we have manufacturing,fruit packing,shop work,cleaning firms.In some areas where a car manufacturer closes it normally is the sould provider of work in the area scary or what.I am just lucky I am a housewife my husband works in the HGV area so it is already in demand and we hopefully are safe for the moment.It is not easy for some.My heart goes out to them.

I think there are jobs but you only get a very low salary not enough to cover your basic necessities.. Just like here in Philippines, most are unemployed because there were no jobs available for their profession.. Most of graduates here are "underemployed".. it's disappointing

i know some people are working all day just to find nothing in there pockets at the end of the week . that would really make you not even want to go to work.the really sad thing is all of those people that just got out of school and cant find any jobs and now they have student loans to deal with.

Should we blame our government for this issue? That's why most of the nursing graduates chose to work abroad because there are many opportunities there. My father is a branch manager of suzuki but his basic salary is only a little higher above the minimum wage. He only gets commission if they can reach their quota every month. But the effect of the global crisis greatly affected their sales so he don't earn that much and if you deduct the loan payments, very little amount will be left and by the end of the month, his earnings was just exactly for our living or even short most of the time..

Hey, Well I actually definitely think that their are jobs out their, but the main thing is that during this recession time period, I think that the people can't actually afford to employ too many people, because of the financial crisis. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!
